We waited in line for 2 1/2 hour to buy our tickets! Insane! BUY YOUR TICKETS ON LINE OR GET A GO PASS and the wait will only be a hour or so. It was fun but I don't think the wait was worth it.

I went because there was a ticket for it in my City Pass booklet. I'm really glad I did. Although it was a lot to go through to get to the top, it's worth it for the experience. I can't imagine a better way to start my trip to Chicago.

I arrived at about 6pm on a Tuesday, and there wasn't much line, but I can see how crazy it could get on a weekend or holiday, so time it carefully. The City Pass gets you in the fast pass lane, and while not necessary at the time I went, it's probably a great time and frustration saver at busy times.

We bought the Chicago City Pass which included the Skydeck Fast Pass. We were told to chew gum while going up the express elevator. It was a good recommendation. As you are going up, there is a video playing that compares the heights you are achieving. Once on top, you can enjoy looking out the windows to see the skyline. Then you can choose to go onto the glass ledge which is enclosed for photos.

We waited @ 2 hours+ for this great view. Recommend that you get the City Pass which gets you around the long wait. Locals still call it the Sears Tower.
